Having problems with your 2006 Cadillac STS ?

Driver's side door won't open in the cold

\015 I have had the transmitter (in the trunk), door lock, and computer module replaced in the driver's side door but when I go to open it in the cold it will not open. The other doors unlock and can be opened but not the driver's side door. At one point the display said it was searching for a 3rd fob (I only have 2). There also seems to be a problem with the remote start in the cold. Any ideas?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Problem started a month or so ago - The dome light does not come on when the driver side door is opened, nor does the car beep anymore if the key is removed fro
